    Don’t do it! Surely you still want some element of surprise! It would be really hard but I wouldn’t do it

    My Fiance left the box on the desk in our shared home office and I resisted! It wasn’t easy! I told him he better put it somewhere else because that’s just not fair to do that to me.

    It was SO worth it to wait!

    I would want to terribly, but I don’t think you should. I think you will love the surprise more. 🙂

    I totally would! Especially since he said it was okay.  Then again, my Fiance let me see my ring and wear it around for a bit once we got it delivered and I took full advantage of it!  It definitely didn’t ruin any surprises for me.

    Umm…. I looked.  I tried not to, but I am impatient and nosy!  I was still thrilled and overwhelmed when he actually proposed.  Smile

    No! Let him see your face when you see it in person for the first time.

    don’t do it!!! the best moment of my life was my unexpected proposal with a gorgeous ring that I never saw before. We didn’t go ring shopping like most people so he did it all on his own and it was the most perfect moment ever!!!

    Fiance and I ordered my ring online as well. Normally, I am a snoop. I like to see all of my gifts before Christmas, and I don’t normally like surprises. However, I did wait until he proposed… and it was totally worth it! 

    Did you look?!

    do you have any idea what he got?

    if you had a hand in ordering it, then i would peek. but if you have absolutey no clue then wait for the surprise with him there.

    Doooooiiiiiiittttttt!  How harmless is a peek??  I can’t contain myself and it isn’t even my ring!!? 

    Ugh, everyone else here is living “upstandingly vicariously” through you with the “don’t look” and how many of us wouldn’t be alone with these rings for 4 hours and not just peek/try on?? 

    I know you peeked.  HOW’D IT LOOK N FEEL?  COME, DO TELL?!!1!!1 yOU’R HUMAN!

    ugghghgh, now I have second-hand possible peeker’s remorse.  Hope OP didn’t peek.  ugh
